After making the transition from child star to boy band heartthrob to movie star, Justin Timberlake is returning to music with his first album since 2006 - cementing his grown-up status with a record inspired by his new marriage. Timberlake officially released "The 20/20 Experience" on March 19 but the 10-track record is already No. 1 on the iTunes charts after it was streamed online. Although lead single "Suit & Tie," featuring rapper Jay-Z, failed to meet sales expectations, the album is expected to sell well following weeks of promotion. Industry sources cited by Billboard said the album could sell 500,000 copies in its first week, and easily give Timberlake the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 album charts. In July he will embark on the "Legends of the Summer" tour of North American stadiums with Jay-Z, and the pair will headline a London music festival that same month.
